    At first glance I thought this was about a blowjob contest.

    I'm more interested in how Kevin's post-weigh-in gorge-fest at the classy restaurant turned out.

    it's over and i am relieved. I lost both my matches, but the first one was pretty epic. I was down 5-0 and on my back when i got a nice reversal from mount (2 pts) and moved straight into side control (3 pts) and tied it. time ran out and i was completely exhausted. we got a minute break and then started again. after 40 seconds or so i got caught in an armbar. second match was against a brazilian who had probably 7 inches on me and 15lbs. he got me in a body triangle which is really awkward and exhausting. He eventually worked in a gi choke from my back. he was aggressive and ultra good. also very gracious and courteous afterwards. all in all it was fun and a little nerve wracking but i learned a LOT. Undecided about doing it again but i love jiu jitsu a million times more now and cant wait to keep training. now we off to eat pizza, drink beerz and watch UFC 100 :kickass:

    edit: more later, with pics. posting from phone now.

    Here are some pics from the first match. I don't have any from the second, unfortunately.

    The person who took these pics didn't get any of us before we got to the ground, but basically I sort of pulled guard and from there was very surprised that I got this close right away to a triangle.

    [​IMG]

    I was never able to get his arm across though, and he eventually fought out of it.

    [​IMG]

    Now he's trying to take my back. That's my coach in the foreground.

    [​IMG]

    He fails though and I'm back to guard, working a pass. He actually catches me in a triangle as I'm doing so which is a noob mistake on my part. D'oh.

    [​IMG]

    But one of my favorite triangle escapes is very simple and worked swimmingly here. Just posture up and shrug him off to one side.

    [​IMG]

    Now I'm in side control, scoring points :)

    [​IMG]

    Time expires and it's tied 5-5. We have to go to overtime. I could barely breathe by now but I knew I had to keep going hard. Here's how overtime started.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    He tried to pull guard and I stayed on my feet. This was a mistake because he threw on a quick armbar I never saw coming and that was the end of it.

    We both fought really hard and I'm not ashamed of this match at all. The second one I probably could have done better but I did give it everything I had. Fun times. Might do again.

    The pictures are intense! Definitely looks like a great learning experience for you and I am sure you'll only get better from here.
